The Lady Mc Connell midge is an interesting, but yet straightforward tie that applies only basic materials. An effective still water pattern that represents an newly hatched adult midge fly.

One thought on “Lady Mc Connell midge fly”
That’s an amazing looking midge dry fly and tied so perfectly! I definitely have a stream in mind for this one. I will be tying some with black and/or claret dubbing as well.
